Anthonomus tenebrosus (weed bioagent) Boheman
This weevil is native to South America where it feeds on some species of Solanum (S. viarum and S. mauritianum) which are invasive in other regions. It has been studied as a possible candidate for classical biological control against these weeds. However, the host range of the weevil was found to be too broad, and introduction into other countries has not been recommended (Diaz et al., 2013).
